My partner and I spent the first eight days of our honeymoon at the Polynesian Resort, and could not have been more impressed. Where to start? The location, for one, is easily the best location on site of any of the hotels - just a two minute walk away from the TTC and the monorail station inside the lobby is... More

Our Family of 6 (with 4 & 5 yr old grandkids) went for our first time and had a second floor, Tahiti, lakeview hotel room. Room had a great view, however, some things were strange. Like the low bottom rod in closed, couldn't store luggage, and certainly couldn't hang clothes there. Toliets that you could hear flushing from above and... More

We chose the Polynesian for our son's first trip to Disney based on a few factors: - We were traveling with an infant for the first time - We had a carseat style stroller - We needed to be able to leave the parks and get back to our resort at anytime easily After researching the Disney resorts, we found...

I can't say enough wonderful things about the Polynesian Resort. We booked a large 2-bedroom "princess" suite in the Tonga building. It was spacious and close to the main building (where the monorail departs). Housekeeping did something special every day (lining my daugther's toys on the bed or a chair -- or making a Disney character or animal out of... More

I recently got back from an amazing trip at disney's polynesian resort. We stayed in the hawaii building, club level. It was amazing! we could see the castle form our room and the cast members were so helpful. The lounge was great, and hte pool was amazing. I have stayed at the Animal kingdom lodge as well, but the polynesian... More

The Polynesian was pretty nice--it has a 70s vibe: low ceilings, dark wood; kind of feels like watching "Fantasy Island" on a Saturday night in 1978 (which can be comforting). What we liked was: the location. It could not be more convenient to the parks. Room size: we had two rooms connecting and it gave us plenty of space. It... More

The location of our room was fantastic! We were at the lake with the beach right outside our door. We even saw the Disney castle in the distance from our room. Snacks were provided in the building. Unfortunately the only place where they had free wifi was by the pool. So as an international traveller I was forced to have... More

I love tripadvisor because after reading a few reviews you can usually see what the place is like. Now I'd like to give back some details that I didn't find elsewhere: We stayed a week Feb 4 - Feb 12 for $239/night at Samoa house (found at disneyworld.com). We were on the first floor and literally walked out of our... More

Before I comment I must say that we stay at very high end hotels so my perception may be off, however the rooms were marginal at best. Felt like I was at a motel, with old carpeting, bad bedding, very thin and old towels. We had bad experiences and I will just list them- 1. the tv was set to... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Polynesian for which we paid just around 500$ per night. We were in the Tahiti building facing Magic Kingdom. The first impression when you walk in the room is dark and gloomy. The room smelled, there was dirt on the walls and spider webs in the corner by the ceiling. The... More
